AIR CONDITIONING

Post by LucyAlan » Tue Jun 16, 2020 5:22 pm

The Air Con in my TCross SE failed 3 months ago with CV19 I have only just had it looked at to be safe for me to take it to the garage.I also have an intermittent fault that the car stalls in 2nd gear ie if I am driving around a roundabout or turning left when I am not actually accelerating. Booked it in to one of the recommended VW garages in Maidenhead this Monday, when I dropped it off was told the air con fault was more than likely due to a stone damaging the compressor and that this would not be covered under the warranty and chargeable. After having the car for 6 hours I was told they had not been able to carry out any checks as the car battery was not full charged so they would charge the battery overnight. When I queried why they needed full battery power to check the air con I was told they would look at it and call me back in an hour. An hour later I was told good news the Compressor had failed and as there was no stone damage it would be covered under the warranty but as the mechanic had to remove the bumper to change the compressor they would need the car for another day. When I picked up the car today was told they had replaced a wire connection and the compressor was ok. The air con seems to be working again now fingers crossed it stays like that. Has anyone else had problems with their air con or stalling in 2nd gear?

When I picked up the car the garage said they could not drive the vehicle to check the stalling issue due to CV19. As I drove away 1/2 mile down the road the car stalled coming up to a roundabout in 2nd gear, its scary at first but it always seems to burst into life when I put my foot down on the clutch! :roll:

Question, presume someone drove it from where you dropped it off, into their service area/on to a ramp. They’re doing test drives and in theory cleaning the car in between, sterering wheel etc
